Star Spangled Baby, Ltd. Announces the Launch of Two New Patriotic Toys for Kids
PHILADELPHIA, PA - August 18, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Star Spangled
Baby, Ltd. (www.starspangledbabyltd.com), a Pennsylvania-based publishing
company specializing in patriotic toys for children, today announced the
addition of two new products designed to teach children 1-4 years of age
about fundamental American values.
"I Pledge Allegiance" (ISBN: 0972676228), Star Spangled Baby's latest board
book, excellently combines education, entertainment and durability. Colorful
images of Old Glory complement our nation's pledge and encourage young
learning. The 6"x 6" book is printed on 400-gsm art card with a laminate
photo finish and rounded corners, which are perfect for little hands.
"Yankee Doodle Days" is a first-ever in the Star Spangled Baby (SSB) line.
The 25-minute DVD features American sites and sounds. Toddlers discover the
4th of July, pastoral places, and our nation's capital. The soundtrack
includes favorites like, "When the Saints Come Marching In," "Camptown
Races," and "Maple Leaf Rag." Also included are special readings of "The
Star-Spangled Banner," and "The Pledge of Allegiance."
"At the age when a fondness for Barney and a taste for McDonald's Happy
Meals is almost a given, it may seem uncanny that children could connect
with the concept of American patriotism," says Tina Grell, founder of Star
Spangled Baby, Ltd., "but with the right educational tools, it can be
Tina Grell formed Star Spangled Baby Ltd. in the spring of 2003. As an army-
family with a husband called to military duty at the Pentagon on September
11th, the events of this day hit close to home for Grell. A year later, amid
the reincarnation of that day, Grell recognized the need to nurture American
values in her then 19-month-old, Caitlin.
"As the anniversary coverage brought back the memories of that day, I
realized how vital it was for us Americans to work together and educate our
children about the importance of good, strong, and free communities," said
With resolve, Grell set out in search of a patriotic, toddler-friendly toy
to support her noble mission and could not find it. "My desperation turned
to determination, and eventually into Star Spangled Baby, Ltd.," said Grell.
Their first book, "Oh Say Can You See" (ISBN: 0972676201) consists of eight
pages of patriotic photos of children carrying flags, along with the words
of our National Anthem.
"The products we have created introduce children early on to important
American values; growing the love and respect that we identify as pure
patriotic feeling. September 11, 2001 will always be a difficult day to
remember, but it is vital for us as Americans to work together to build good
strong and free communities and that begins with the values we instill in
"Before today, young children would begin Kindergarten or First
Grade and not know what our flag stands for. Learning about our flag and our
country's vital symbols encourages kids to incorporate patriotism, and a
love and respect for our flag, as a cornerstone of their personality."
